Turn, turn, my wheel!

Turn, turn, my wheel! Turn round and round
Without a pause, without a sound:
  So spins the flying world away!
This clay, well mixed with marl and sand,
Follows the motion of my hand;
For some must follow, and some command,
  Though all are made of clay!

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow—Keramos. L. 1.

I am on a pottery course on Lake Malawi! I’ll resume regular posting on my return. Peace, all!
